New Blood Likely for Everest Slot

Wednesday, 8th July 2020

An announcement later this week is believed to be pending that will see star 3YO Alligator Blood (All Too Hard) become the third horse confirmed as a starter in October’s $15 million The TAB Everest (1200m) in Sydney. According to dailytelegraph.com.au, Alligator Blood’s owner Allan Endresz has intimated that negotiations are at an advanced stage with an Everest slot-holder. If successful, it would guarantee the superb sprinter-mile a start in the world’s richest turf race, run at Royal Randwick on October 17. Endresz revealed, “We have an agreement that is in place and now it is a case of settlement.” That’s expected to occur by Friday. Already second elect for The Everest behind Nature Strip, Alligator Blood’s planned program could also see the David Vandyke-trained gelding start in the $7.5 million Golden Eagle.
